Cost basis is the key to calculate your client’s capital gains on an investment for tax purposes and knowing their cost basis is an essential step in the capital gains calculation. You can use our new Worldwide Equity Cost Basis (WECB) solution to track:
- Security Evolution
- Security Cost Basis
- Tax Status
The WECB will serve as a foundation for any capital gains calculations in any jurisdiction. Without this information, any capital gains tax calculation would be inaccurate as the security could have changed since its purchase.
WECB service has been designed to track both a securities cost basis, its evolution, and all its descendants cost basis & evolution up to the current date. Many events can cause changes to the original holding, for example de-mergers and/or distributions will cause your original booking to be diversified into many other holdings.
The WECB service helps you track these changes and their cost, to help you making better and informed decisions and it includes all events that affect cost basis and the number of units.
